UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines the relation between the normal functioning (physiology) and disease (pathophysiology) of seven basic organ systems: 1. heart and blood vessels (cardiology, arteriosclerosis), 2. lung (pulmonology), 3. kidney (nephrology), 4. gastro intestinal tract, 5. endocrine glands (endocrinology), 6. the central nervous system, and 7. the reproductive system. To demonstrate the relation between two or more organ systems, the course ends with a study of diabetes, which involves aspects of endocrinology and the cardiovascular and nervous system. Students complete several essays and oral presentations about an aspect of embryology, anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology, and report their findings to the class. The instructor demonstrates a real diagnosis at the University Hospital. Though the course does not emphasize clinical skills, students participate actively during this demonstration. Prerequisites for this course are Molecular Cell Biology and Human and Animal Biology.
